In September 2015, producer Simon Kinberg said that a sequel for Deadpool is in development.[5] In February 2016, Ryan Reynolds told IGN that he would like to portray his character for the rest of his life.[6] Also, during the same month, the film was greenlit three days before the first film's release, and Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick already signed on to return, and while director Tim Miller isn't attached just yet, Fox is hoping to bring him back in order to reunite the creative team who have made this first film.[7][8]

Ryan Reynolds has expressed interest for Deadpool to have a boyfriend saying "I love that about Deadpool. I love that he can break any boundary. In the future, I hope we get to do that more…I certainly wouldn’t be the guy standing in the way of that. That would be great."[9]

It was reported that Deadpool 2 wil be released on January 12, 2018, following the release of Logan. [10] In October 2016, Miller was no longer part of the sequel due to creative differences with Reynolds over the casting of Cable and the film's direction, either a raunchy comedy or a stylized superhero movie.[11][12] Six days later, Mashable reported that David Leitch was the frontrunner to direct the sequel, with Drew Goddard and Magnus Martens as other candidates.[13][14]

Despite the initial release date of January 12, 2018, it was then reported that Deadpool 2 may have been pushed to back to March 2, 2018.[15]

In November 2016, The Hollywood Reporter announced that Leitch will direct the sequel.[16]
